Fashion

Western Pop

I’m not big on the ‘try new things’ movement. As enticing as venturing into the unknown¬†sounds, I don’t get what the hype is all about. To be honest, trying new things is especially tough for me. I typically find comfort with the ‘usuals’ ūüôā . Despite my love for the old or what I know, I occasionally make an effort to be somewhat adventurous. When it comes to fashion, I pretty much prefer to stick to the classics and ‘some’. And by some…I mean experimenting with a couple of intriguing seasonal runway trends by making them modest fashion appropriate. Surprisingly, I’ve mostly enjoyed and not regretted trying or embracing new things/experiences. One of my latest fashion explorations was trying the western trend.

Western allure has never really appealed¬†to me until recently. Casual and mundane are the words that come to mind when I think about western style. I’ve noticed that western separates are typically matched with anything denim hence, they come off as informal. With western trends appearing on the spring 2018 runway, I still wasn’t accommodating¬†the thought of trying it out. I came across a shirt (in this post) from Mango¬†a few weeks ago that compelled me to consider western looks as more fashionable. What I love about this shirt is the pattern,¬†color, pocket and¬†collar accents. The shirt is embellished with a cute tie that gives off a more formal/fancy vibe. I paired the shirt with hot pink peg pants for a nice contrast and fashion-forward charm.

I’ve included links (highlighted) to available outfit items below the first picture.
